Relient K - Forget And Not Slow Down

Relient K - Forget And Not Slow Down

I get so busy... and a lot of times I don't want to think about what has happened but simply "move on.' Let go of the past, but remember what you've been through to motivate what you do now and in the future:



Lyrics (from LyricsReg.com)


How many times
Can I push it aside
Is it time I befriended all the ghosts of all the things that haunt me most
So they leave me alone
Move on with my life
Be certain the steps of left and right don't fight the direction of upright

I'd rather forget and not slow down
Than gather regret for the things I can't change now
If I become what I can't accept
Resurrect the saint from within the wretch
Pour over me and wash my hands of it

It's time to decide
Which is out of my mind
Cause it'll be me unless I put some thoughts to rest and leave some faults behind
I'll watch the glint in my eye
Shine off the spring in my step
And could be blinding depending on the amount of You that I reflect

Cause I could spend my life just trying to sift through
What I could've done better but what good do what ifs do
Oh oh
Oh oh
There's something I should tell you now

Need to Breathe - Go Tell It on the Mountain

To go along with my post on Gomimasao.blogspot.com: (will be posted on 2/22/12)


Ash Wednesday is tomorrow, and just as the angels announced His first coming, His death tomorrow on the beginning of the days leading up to it, He calls us to tell all who would listen."



Lyrics (from OnlyLyrics.com)

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
Jesus Christ is born

While shepherds kept their watching
Over silent flocks by night
Behold throughout the heavens
They're shown a holy light

The shepherds feared and trembled
When all above the earth
Rang out the angel chorus
That held a saviors birth

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
Jesus Christ is born

Now in a lonely manger
The humble Christ was born
And god sent our salvation
That blessed this Christmas morn

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

Hallelujah Hallelujah Jesus Christ is born
Hallelujah Hallelujah savior of the world
Hallelujah Hallelujah Jesus Christ is born
Hallelujah Hallelujah savior of the world

Oh he's the savior of the world

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

Hallelujah Hallelujah Jesus Christ is born
So Hallelujah Hallelujah Jesus Christ is born

Josh Wilson - I Refuse

A lot of times in 'modern Christianity' we have made the mistake of getting trapped in our own circles. We need to get out and be the hands and feet of Jesus, unlike the temptation to stay in our own little and comfortable lives instead of living for the Glory of His name. Josh Wilson's repsonse? He refuses...




Lyrics (from Elyrics.net)

Sometimes I
I just want to close my eyes
And act like everyone's alright
When I know they're not

This world needs God
But it's easier to stand and watch
I could say a prayer and just move on
Like nothing's wrong

But I refuse
'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care
I don't want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

I can hear the least of these
Crying out so desperately
And I know we are the hands and feet
Of You, oh God

So, if You say move
It's time for me to follow through
And do what I was made to do
Show them who You are

'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care
I don't want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

To stand and watch the weary and lost
Cry out for help
I refuse to turn my back
And try and act like all is well

I refuse to stay unchanged
To wait another day, to die to myself
I refuse to make one more excuse

'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care
I don't want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

I refuse
I refuse

Hawk Nelson - Friend Like That

A song that describes someone we all need... and need to be.




Lyrics (from AZLyrics.com)

I like it simple and
I'm not a Superman
I never said that I was more than that
I'm not a wanna be
I'm who I want to be
And I intend to be
How you created me

[Pre-chorus:]
I... I need somebody on the inside
I... I want somebody who can set me free
I'm not The only one who feels like this
I've got a few others around me
Hey

[Chorus:]
Hey let me hear you say
Make some noise if you feel this way
Hey if you've got a friend like that
Hey let's scream and shout
If you know what I'm talking about
Anybody got a friend like that

I once was little and
I always had a plan
You thought my friendliness
Was just an act (hey)
I'll be your friend indeed
And you can count on me
And I can guarantee
Your friend I'll always be

[Pre-chorus]
[Chorus]

Does anyone out there feel alone?
Can anyone hear me (woh, woh)?
Down and out your heart is cold
It's never easy (woh, woh)
But if you believe that there is hope
Then sing it with me

[Chorus x2]

[Pre-chorus]
